There is this joke making fun of the different nationalities in Europe, and I think it pretty much fits the national stereotypes to the teeth, and that is why people around the world find it hilarious; in Kenya, a Kikuyu once told me this joke and he thought it was very funny (then proceeded to tell me a joke making fun of Kikuyus, while laughing hysterically):
Heaven is a place where:
The lovers are Italian
The cooks are French
The mechanics are German
The police are English
The government is run by the Swiss
Hell is a place where:
The lovers are Swiss
The cooks are English
The mechanics are French
The police are German
The government is run by the Italians
Wouldn’t it be great if here in America we could make light humor about our stereotypical differences, instead of it being so PC all the time?
So for example on today’s university campus: Heaven is where the half Koreans are the comedians, the liberals are the English students, the conservatives are doing ROTC or business school, and the Chinese are studying engineering; hell is where the half Koreans are the basketball players, the liberals are the comedians or ROTC or business school, and the Chinese are the English students. But I don’t think I will go any further than that, lest I offend. Perhaps I’ve stepped over the line already.
